This Pathway has been designed to allow individuals to consider their longer term goals, by exploring interests in a number of vocational and practical subject areas. Using this experience, learners are supported to make informed decisions about where they would like to go after college, whether that is to live more independently, study higher level qualifications or prepare for the world of work in a chosen discipline.


Learners will receive the support they need through the creation of an Individualised Learning Plan, which will detail predicted learning milestones and outcomes.

Every Individualised Learning Plan is different. A plan will be designed around individual interests and needs. It will include compulsory modules and a range of optional modules that learners can choose.


  • Independence training in the learners home area (including travel training)
  • Employability training, helping learners decide what sort of work they would like to do when they leave college
  • Functional Skills are mandatory, helping learners improve their level of English and mathematics
  • Vocational studies:
    • Horticulture
    • Animal Care
    • Hospitality and Catering
    • Gardening and Grounds Maintenance
    • Duke of Edinburgh Award
    • Enterprise
    • Work Experience 


What does the Pathway lead to?

This Pathway would typically form the first year of a two year placement, allowing learners time to explore their options, before committing to specific outcomes in their second year.

However, if this is a one year placement learners could progress onto further education, studying higher level qualifications or secure a supported internship / supported employment opportunity.


Please give the college a call to find out more.
